I am attempting to install College Linux on my desktop computer. The system already has Windows Xp on it. I have two hard drives, one that has Windows, and the other is blank (a 40 Gb). I used windows to partition the 40 gb drive. One partition is 10 gb, the other is the remaining space. I want to install College Linux on the 10 gb partition. I downloaded and burned both College Linux 2.3 and 2.5 to cds, with the exact same results. When the packages finished installing to the partition, it said to quit the installer, remove the cd, then type reboot. I do this, and when the system reboots it says "Error Loading Operating System". During the installation I removed the hard drive with windows on it to see if that was affecting the installation, but the results are the same. Is this a problem with Lilo? Or are both copies of Linux corrupted? From what I've read online, most machines are compatable with linux. Please post instructions. Thank you.
